Tommy John surgery for a catcher? Possibly. Orioles C Matt Wieters will see noted orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews on Wednesday for an exam on his right elbow, which has experienced soreness (preceded by forearm soreness) for a couple of weeks.
The O's haven't offered many specifics about Wieters' injury, so we might have to wait another day or two for the results - Buck Showalter is apparently hoping that Wieters will be back to Tampa in time for tonight's game. Keep your fingers crossed if you own Wieters.
Ernesto Frierigave up a run in a tie game on Tuesday against the Yankees, and he might not have his closer job back just yet. Apparently, Joe Smithwas preparing to close out Monday's win before throwing up, causing the Angels to switch to Frieri. Mike Scioscia still wants Frieri to get the job back, but Monday's circumstances probably weren't the sign that it's already happened.
Streaming starters: Robbie Erlinwas pretty good on Tuesday, raising our record to 23-13 for the season. Today's pick is Colby Lewis (owned in 2.2 percent of FOXSports.com leagues) versus the Rockies, while Thursday's selection is Drew Smyly (20.9 percent owned) against the Astros.
Reds' closer Aroldis Chapmangave up five runs in a Tuesday rehab appearance, but he came through it healthy, and is still hoping to return this weekend. If Chapman able to pitch today without incident, prepare to activate him.
Aaron Loupgot Tuesday's save for the Blue Jays. I still think it's a committee until Casey Janssen returns.
